Supplier diversity at U.S. Bank

Our supplier diversity program demonstrates our commitment to promoting opportunities for certified small businesses and businesses owned by minorities, women, LGBTQ individuals, veterans and people with disabilities. All employees that purchase or influence purchasing decisions are responsible for identifying opportunities for diverse suppliers to participate in the competitive bid process on an equal basis with all other bidders.
